HALIFAX — A human rights board has ordered the City of Halifax to pay almost $600,000 in damages after a former bus mechanic suffered racist discrimination.

Last year, the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission board of inquiry in the case found widespread racial discrimination and a poisoned work environment at Halifax Transit's garage.

The mechanic filed the complaint with the rights commission over 12 years ago, in July 2006, saying the worker suffered from trauma due to the hostile workplace.

The worker's lawyer had asked for the maximum amount awarded under Canadian law for general damages.

The Toronto District School Board placed the principal and vice-principal of Glenview Senior Public School on home assignment, beginning Monday. They will remain so throughout a board investigation looking into “gaps” in how procedures were followed. “We do not tolerate racism,” the board’s director of education John Malloy told the Star on Tuesday.
